Sunday morning pilgrimage to St Patrick’s fasting and meditation spot at Murrisk. The orange native orchid-like plants set the overcast drive alive.
Our early start paid dividends:- the choice of any car park; the chance to climb at my slow pace without impeding others; and that dull but morning but clear sky and no rain for a few pics.
This blog is dedicated to Jennifer Wills. Jenny and I would have been doing this walk together, but it was not to be. So Jenny, here is my small but genuine gesture of friendship to you. Wish you could have been here!
To all my other friends who share the spiritual links to St Patrick, this is also for you.
The path way up ahead…….I climbed for about 45 minutes, reached a fair distance, then returned when the numbers of climbers started to become heavy.
the path goes through private farming land occupied by the sheep silhouted along the ridge.
A very challenging spiritual experience, especially for a non Catholic without a background in the faith.
Slainte Jenny! My knees will recover I’m sure.
